Thursday night's home game for the Eastern Oklahoma Riverdawgs Major American Legion baseball team against Okmulgee at Poteau High School's Town Creek Park was canceled due to Okmulgee lacking enough players for the game â€” as well as the possibility of Thursday night rain.
Coach Dave Oliver said the Okmulgee game will try to be rescheduled for July 10, but no date has been set as of this time.
